Martin Waymire today announced the promotion of Adam Bitely to vice president of public affairs.
Bitely led Martin Waymire’s efforts with Michigan’s EITC Coalition to successfully expand Michigan’s earned income tax credit (EITC) from 6 to 30%. He also leads client teams for the Michigan Infrastructure and Transportation Association, Michigan Future Inc., Michigan Consensus Policy Project, Michigan Alliance for Student Opportunity, and the Virginia Association of Nurse Anesthetists, while providing support for the University Research Corridor and Michigan Association of Health Plans, among others.
“Adam has been a natural leader at Martin Waymire since he joined our team two years ago, and we’re thrilled to have him take on a larger role with the public affairs work we do to make Michigan a better place,” said Angela Minicuci, partner at Martin Waymire. “Adam’s knowledge of the legislative process and inner workings of our government will continue to be instrumental for the top-level strategy and guidance we provide to our clients.”
Bitely joined Martin Waymire in 2021 after six years with the Michigan Senate, where he served as digital media director for the Senate Republicans. He has more than 16 years of experience in strategic communications, digital marketing, and political strategy and messaging. He has worked on political campaigns at all levels, from county offices to presidential campaigns – and everything in between. In 2018, he oversaw Michigan Senate Republican digital campaign efforts and played a key role in developing messaging and strategy for the caucus during the election cycle.
Bitely attended George Mason University where he studied economics and government.
